Monday morning I went to my doctor to get a referral for a counselor/therapist/psychiatrist/whateverthehell so I can finally get proper help for my severe depression/anxiety issues. He told me he'd call me sometime over the next couple of days once he had something set up for me, and that it shouldn't take long for him to do because I'm considered an "urgent" case.

It's now Thursday afternoon and I have three missed calls on my cellphone; one from Monday just a few hours after my appointment, one from sometime yesterday evening, and another from this morning. I don't have caller ID so I don't know where these calls came from. I have no idea why I didn't hear my phone ringing either of these times, as I've kept my phone with me, had vibrate turned on and an obnoxiously loud ringtone set on max volume since I left the doctor's office specifically so I wouldn't miss his call. At the moment I don't have any other means of contact for my doctor to reach me (he doesn't use email with his clients).

What should I do in this case? Should I wait and see if I can catch the next call and hope it's my doctor with info about the counseling, or should I call the clinic tomorrow and ask the receptionist if he tried to get a hold of me? Unfortunately a large portion of my anxiety is phone-related (it's a long story) and I get really uncomfortable having to talk to people over the phone.
